Report: More American Babies in 2006 Than in 45 Years

An AP review of global birth records came up with the following, with emphasis added to a blip that should come as no surprise but would make Tom Tancredo's skin crawl:

"The nearly 4.3 million births in 2006 were mostly due to a bigger population, especially a growing number of Hispanics. That group accounted for nearly one-quarter of all U.S. births. But non-Hispanic white women and other racial and ethnic groups were having more babies, too."

And why is this occurring? Well, it seems obvious to some.

Some complain that many illegal immigrants come here purposely to have children.

"The child is an automatic American citizen, thus entitled to all benefits of American citizens. This gives a certain financial incentive for people coming from other countries illegally to have children here," said John Vinson, president of the Virginia-based American Immigration Control Foundation.

With a Democratic Congress and a likely Democratic president in 2009 expanding our bloated social services system to cover all of these new Hispanic babies, is it so hard to see why so many Americans are pessimistic about our future as a self-sustaining sovereign nation?
